Congrats Mathlete!
Congratulations from me too!
Interesting deck, thank you very much for sharing. I see very little location control. That ever become a problem?
Congrats - love it that Targ won at Worlds!
And some more congratulations!

Love the deck, hopefully your champion card will be as interesting and game changing as the previous one. =)
Congratulations! Love the deck!

Now, if you could just make an OP unique Targ character for your champ card all my dreams will have come true!

Congrats, Mathlete! You are surely, The Man. And such a classic Mathlete deck, too! Well done!

I second the call for an OP unique Targ card! YES!
When I won in 2005, I played with a 64-card Targaryen deck! Who says you MUST have 60 cards? Not I! lol

Congratulations first, and seems like an awesome deck too!
The only question I have is why Waste Their Time? Always felt like I should be able to find a use for that card, but never really been able to work it in.

It's a Power Struggle Plot, puts your opponent at a disadvantage if played first and gives me a lot of knowledge about my opponent's opening hand. Knowledge is power! Also, don't forget, in a KotHH deck, it's a 4-3-1 Plot. Imagine this scenario (which has happened quite a few times in playtesting back home)....you are Martell and have The Viper's Bannerman in hand. You play the 1-2-2 Manning the City Walls. I play Waster Their Time. I go first, remove your Bannerman, you don't get a 7 STR Army, its 2 cards and you're stuck with one gold. What about against a Winter deck who plays A Time for Ravens? Again, You only have 2 Initiative and I play first, let your Plot happen first and bye-bye raven!

Congratulations man. I'd heard your name and wondered who you were, I guess now I know, a 2 time world champion. :)
Grats Mathlete and damn! :)
This is aprox 15 cards different from the deck I wanted to play in Stahleck. If your deck would've been 60 cards, than the only difference would have been 12 cards. More incinerate, more ambush from the plains, fewer confession, no Viserion, little bit more Jhogo, and like in my variant. At least I now it wasn't a totally hopeless idea. :)

That is an amazing idea! How to get an easily dismissed plot, and make it good.
You make an excellent point sir, and some thoughts I didn't even consider, being blinded by the 2-1-1 aspect of the card. I commend you good sir, though I suspect winning the Worlds Joust tournament is all the commendation you need. :)
Thanks for taking the time to explain! Also, great name!
Congrats on the win, man. I do have one question from the comments. I'm not up on the abrieviations so what's an OP character? Over Powered? And why would you want an over powered character. Takes allot of teh fun out of teh game.
Well, part of that was tongue-in-cheek because champ cards tend to be a good bit more powerful than your standard fare. Say, like Meera Reed (TftH). We'd love to see a Targ equivalent. :-)

Are they really OP? That's a bit debatable. (And, yes, that stands for overpowered.)
One day a Lannister will get a card :(
